While most of us are desperately waiting to watch Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor. Dutt’s wife Maanyata seems to be equally disturbed. Yes, according to today’s Mumbai Mirror report, Maanyata isn’t very sure about how her part, played by Dia Mirza, has been portrayed in the film. In fact, she isn’t even aware about the screen time given to her role considering Rajkummar Hirani, as per the report, hasn’t bothered to inform her about her character. Reveals a source in interaction with Mirror, “A nervous Maanyata has been calling all and sundry (including Ranbir Kapoor), trying to get more info on the movie.” Also read: Sanjay Dutt feels that Ranbir Kapoor does not need any advice from him for the Dutt biopic – watch video!
Although we don’t know how believable is this report but contradicting the same, Dia, who essays Maanyata’s part in the film, has all good things to say about Mrs Dutt and how she is loving the way Hirani is portraying Maanayata in the film. “I believe Manyata is someone who has a strong sense of self. Ranbir has transformed himself into Sanjay totally but I don’t think others need to do the same. I have interacted with her over the years and I think she is the anchor in Sanjay’s life. But I have perceived Manyata through the wonderful writing (by Abhijat and Raju) that’s been written about her.”, said Dia when she was asked about playing Maanyata in the Dutt biopic, a few months back.
Now it’s left to see which side of the story turns out to be true. Apart from Ranbir as Dutt and Dia as Maanyata, the biopic further stars Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt, Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay Dutt’s friend, Sonam Kapoor as his love interest and Anushka Sharma in the role of journalist. The much anticipated film is currently in its last schedule and is gearing up for a March 2018 release. Keep watching this space for more updates
